The EQRS Data Management Guidelines contain CMS-approved processes that EQRS users should reference when overseeing EQRS data entry and reporting efforts. The EQRS Data Managers interact with data in the system at all levels (facility, network and above). There are three tiers or EQRS Data Managers:

  • Tier 1 EQRS Data Managers are facility-level usersĀ and Electronic Data Interface (EDI) submitters. These individuals or groups manually or electronically enter patient and facility details directly into EQRS.

The EQRS Data Management Guidelines provides detail information on what task facility users complete in EQRS and when to complete those tasks.
